Get started designing your own professional publications

Three text boxes with different text and text box formatting applied


If you want to customize the look of a publication, you can do all kinds of things to change the appearance of text and the text box that contains it.

For example, you can use the Text Box command (on the Format menu) to:

  • Add a border around the text box.
  • Change the background or border color.
  • Rotate the text that's inside the text box.
  • Change the margin between the text and text box boundary.

Tip     If you base your publication on one of the predesigned publications, you don't have to worry about formatting individual text boxes unless you want to create a special effect.
